are right behind me. to some of the leading technology companies in the valley. we have companies that raise anywhere from a thousand dollars to $25 million that have sort of been housed with us. some of the coolest things that have happened at the hatchery two people sitting next to each other working on the same app for six months decided to merge and raise a million dollars for their company. so, collaborative consumption is something we truly believe in and having spent a couple of years working with the likes of jane, brian, tina lee and a bunch of other people who have been sort of working on this open data problem, it's been sort of exciting to sort of see it come to fruition today and see sort of the progress that they've made. so, for me this is sort of -- it's been fun to sort of watch this team of people come together and do what they do and make san francisco a 21st century city. so, you know, it's an honor to welcome the mayor back to the hatchery, the new hatchery. we invite you, supervisor chiu, to our monthly infamous happy hours where bourbon and branch caters to meet with o
that historically has suffered from maybe the worst website and some of the worst technology in government. and over the last few years we have worked really hard to improve that park user's experience through the use of technology. and i want to start out before we talk a little about the app saying a if you thank yous. i really want to thank mayor lee to his incredible commitment to technology and frankly the recreation and park department. i want to thank supervisor chiu who has been a leader both in the parks world and in the technology world. sf city has really been a driving force behind helping government think about new ways, new and improved ways maybe for some of you they're old ways now. but new and improved ways for government to reach users of our programs and services. and i want to say the last special thank you to the folks from apple-liscious. this thing is awesome. this past year, the trust for public land which is a national parks organization determined that san francisco, which has 4,000 acres of open space and over 220 parks, over 15% of the city's land is open space. the trust
: but that is less and less likely in a world where global competition and rapidly changing technology are washing away and replacing middle class work. faced with these challenges, the president offers two solutions: more training and more investment in technology to help american workers compete. and there's bipartisan support for that approach. >> going forward the question will be can we take people with average skills and give them a new technology that makes them earn a lot of money, or can we make our workers more skilled and thus allow them to earn more money. that's going to be the issue. >> reporter: the other issue is scale. the american middle class is vast and so are the challenges facing it. >> the magnitude of the problem facing the middle class-- this disconnect between economic growth and their prosperity, their opportunities is quite large relative to many of the solutions we're proposing which are on the small side. so we have to ramp up the magnitude of the solutions. >> reporter: which brings us back to where we started. big solutions can be expensive. and that's not popular a
in power, with sewer, with water that are not always proven technologies, but they're things that are enough proven you should take a bit of a risk and you should show others it can be done. >> we're showing the world, suddenly had wind turbines which they didn't have before. so, our team realizing that time would change, and realizing where the opportunities were today, we said, you know what, we started out as really something to control wind as an asset, when you combine today's technology becomes something entirely different. >> wind turbines in an urban environment is a relatively new concept. there are a few buildings in other major cities where they have installed wind turbines on the roof. and wind turbines in buildings are effective. >> the discussion was do we do that or not? and the answer was, of course. if they're not perfect yet, they're building a building that will last 100 years. in 100 years someone is going to perfect wind efficient turbines. if these aren't right, we'll replace them. we have time to do that. >> the building that's two renewable energy gene

with was looking toward a future where the technology is designed in the building would represent state of the art when the building opened. >> and in order to accomplish that, the industry is pointed in the direction of providing hardware and software to colese these systems instead of looking at ten monitors you look at fewer and the information is collected and put through a policy engine, that is a decision-making engine that informed by people and actionable information is placed to people who under crisis may not think as clearly as they otherwise might. so a security, piecing system which is what we believe through current application will be the standard in the future. and the opportunities for that to happen are embedded in the design now through the enhancement of conduit and above and beyond what was conceived of in the conceptual phase. >> one of the last areas of mitigation is this chemical and biological release, design has been greatly informed over the past five years, five years ago, the information from the sources such as our national labs, sandia, argon mit, specific northwest

, the technology plan. you will notice this year that, as was shepherded by this commission, the technology policy now is included in each of the capital project sheets and how that capital project is reviewed against the technology policy is a new thing this year. community benefits on investments in the garden project in [speaker not understood], and also the schools with the environmental science center. also very large improvements in the southwest community center are here. that is a commitment that you have asked us to make and that we continue to charge forward with. so, what is before you, then, is really those small changes and the rest of the items in item number 10 are your adoption legislation, unless you have any amendments that you would like. and i know president torres, when we talked about the bond savings, had proposed a consideration of that amendment as well. i'm happy to answer any questions and all the other agms are here to respond as well. >> any questions from members of the commission? i have some as well. commissioner moran. >> thank you. first of all, thanks to the staf
are still without a plan that was originally envisioned. arizona border's technology development remains in question. according to the jo, the department does not have the information necessary to support the estimated $1.5 billion plan, which is the successor to the council's multibillion-dollar fbi net. the department has not demonstrated the effectiveness in deploying surveillance technology. the jo also found that $1.5 billion cost estimate may not be reliable. if this new plan goes awry, the department will have spent over two billion dollars in an attempt to develop technology with little more to show them cancel programs and canceled checks the contractors. this is but one example why the department must go through this acquisition system, to improve how it does its job analysis and make sure we have a better way of purchasing technology. the new administration has made some improvement, the newly created accountability and risk- management designed to manage the oversight acquisition program appears to be a step in the right direction. i am concerned only 45 staff in this office
compete with newer technology. the accessibility of digital recording stuff, you can make a record in your living room. you don't need those big places anymore. but i think those big places are like museums because generations of kids have changed. the world has changed from the music that was made in these places. to me music history is just as important as the president and politics. (applause) >> dave: well, i think you're right. one of the great things about the movie is there's many facets to this story and the one is that digital music makes a huge inroad into music culture and it kind of kicks the legs out from under sound city which was analog. so i can remember and probably everybody's got there story, when i got my first c.d. player and you put the c.d. in and everybody would listen to it and they said "it's so quiet, you can't hear it." that doesn't mean it's better, does it? >> it's funny. in the movie we talk about technology, it has a lot to do with why sound city isn't around anymore. when i was a kid i would have killed to have that accessibility or opportunity to make reco
, the department of homeland security announced its plan to install technology along the southwest border that would serve as a virtual fence and provide a border patrol with information it needs to secure the border. unbelievably, the contract that allowed the project to go forward did so specifically prohibiting border patrol agents, those who work on the ground, from providing input to the design, develop, implementation of that system. that's unacceptable. seven years and over $1 billion later we're still without the plan that was originally envisioned, and subsequent, the arizona border surveillance technology program remains in question. according to the gao, the department does not have the information necessary to support and implement the estimated $1.5 billion plan which is the successor to the council -- counseled multibillion-dollar sbinet. in addition to find the department hasn't yet damaged the effectiveness and suitability of its new approach for deploying surveillance technology, the gao also found that $1.5 billion, ten-year cost as for for the program, may not be reliab
surprised that particular technology was not used. i think it is vital to understand that unless these officers knew for certain that there were no hostages in that cabin, that the use of the pyrotechnics is doubly questionable. >> radley balko, can you give us the history of the use of these incendiary devices? they are not used that much in fact. >> the incident in waco is the first one that comes to mind. chief stamper and i agree on a lot, but i would disagree the moment that flash grenades -- there are a number of fires that i have reported on and others have that were started by flash grenades as well. in this case, were you have an actual someone who was killed a lot of people, certainly, i don't think anyone would object to the flash grenades. they are used pretty frequently in drug raids, people suspected of nonviolent crimes. i think it's become a little more problematic in that situation. >> the history of them from waco to -- >> of the tear gas? >> of the use of these incendiary devices, yes. >> these particular high-profile incidents, i don't know -- chief stamper co

that is surrounding the technology problems with those batteries that, of course, led to the grounding of boeing 787. airbus says it does not expect the batteries to delay the a-350. and the deadline has now passed for outside investors and steve cohen's outside capital to withdraw funds from that hedge fund. the manager says roughly 60% of the firm's money comes from dollars invested by cohen and his employees. so the impact of their redemptions may be more symbolic than anything else. blackstone is si a c's largest outside investor. the firm did redeem some investor capital and will consider whether to remove additional funds in may. and couster's says it will oppose disney's combination of the chairman role and its executive pay plan at the company's annual share hoeding meeting in march. that's 0.3% of a stake. so i don't think this goes anywhere. they like to be advocate and -- obviously involved if there's a centered around. >> bob iger was elected chairman at last month's meeting and if you poll ten people, nine of them would say he's worth every penny, and he's handsome. he has a beautiful w
